   44 This is an exerpt from an email I recieved from the original author, allowing
   45 xinetd as maintained by me, to use the higher version numbers:
   46 
   47 I appreciate your maintaining the version string guidelines as specified
   48 in the copyright. But I did not mean them to last as long as they did.
   49 
   50 So, if you want, you may use any 2.N.* (N >= 3) version string for future       
   51 xinetd versions that you release. Note that I am excluding the 2.2.* line;      
   52 using that would only create confusion. Naming the next release 2.3.0           
   53 would put to rest the confusion about 2.2.1 and 2.1.8.*.
